These screening tests really saved my life
July 19, 2013
It was great! HealthFair was the one that discovered I had PAD, and I don’t know what I would have done without them because it was really bad. HealthFair sent me right to my doctor and my doctor sent me to the hospital and they took care of it, so I thank HealthFair for finding it! The surgeon removed the blockage in my legs. It was wonderful. The surgery wasn’t wonderful, but it was wonderful that HealthFair found it because if I wouldn’t have gone to them I probably wouldn’t have known. Although I knew I was in a lot of pain, I knew there was something wrong, maybe in the back of my mind I knew that if I went to HealthFair, they would find it. I don’t know, but they did and I feel like HealthFair saved my life!
I can’t understand why more people do not go for health screenings; I told all my friends that those screenings really saved my life. It’s wonderful; I’m just now getting back to my old self. I wanted to thank everybody at HealthFair for what they have done. I’m proud of what you guys did. Thank you!
Your health is worth it.

Every year or two, I visit the HealthFair screening bus. Although I regularly see my physician, it’s a way for me to receive additional testing at an affordable price. When I visited this February, what the technicians found absolutely saved my life. They discovered I had aortic stenosis. The staff was wonderful. They took the time to explain my results and advised me to call my physician immediately.
My cardiologist confirmed the results and I am now recovering from a successful valve replacement surgery. If it wasn’t for HealthFair, I would’ve never known anything was wrong. I can’t thank them enough for the services they provide.
I encourage all my friends to get screened. I remind them, you can’t take your money to the grave. These screenings are affordable and well worth the price. Your health is worth it.
Thank you for saving my life!
Commendation—Mobile Health Clinic-Inova-Mt Vernon Hospital
February 5, 2013
Just a short commendation for Inova’s leadership and especially the terrific staff at your Mobile Health Clinic that I visited January 31st, 2013 at the parking lot at Mt Vernon Inova Hospital.
Each of the staff at the clinic were courteous, professional and the tests timely—I underwent a series of tests that I wouldn’t normally get during my annual physical (which I had two weeks prior). The tests were cost effective, the unique blood test (finger pricking) achieved the same results in minutes compared the my doctor’s staff drawing blood and taking a week to get results back, with costs much reduced, so the two tests were mutually confirming.
Could you let the staff at the mobile clinic know how much I appreciated their work and their courtesy, professionalism and excellent organizational skills!
